Shauna La explores the relationships between lines and emotion, color, and thought in her acrylic and mixed media works. Her minimalist wall art exhibits linear texture and movement, establishing an enduring understanding of receptive surfaces that respond to the world around them. Her original artworks ask us to slow down and inspect their painted and sculpted surface for subtle shifts in color, light, and texture. Ranging from small canvases with muted color impassioned with texture and stark charcoal lines to extremely large canvases enriched with brilliant texture and depth, her painting speaks to the viewer through its exuberance. La creates compelling and beautiful glimpses into her innovative perception of reality and her reaction to it.

“For me, existence is about creation, exploration, and especially attuning myself to energies and frequencies that are not immediately obvious. My process involves observing physical characteristics such as colors, sensations, tastes, and smells as well as unconventional occurrences like lucid dreams or meditation. All of this blends together into a fantastic maelstrom that inspires me to create. I use paint and collage elements to build rough surfaces full of texture, adding and stripping away layers using palette knives to reveal prior layers underneath, sometimes enriching the amalgam with cement, and finishing with charcoal and paint. The whitewashed textured surfaces represent our limited perceptions of reality, while the charcoal and lines are like cryptic messages we sometimes receive. The multiple layers beneath surfaces of my paintings symbolize things we might only see or feel in fleeting glimpses, and if we so choose, are available for us to reflect on and contemplate.”
